Google just got an important lawsuit on the face recognition refused. 

As first reported by Bloomberg, the lawsuit was dismissed by the state judge who found that the plaintiffs had not suffered "physical injuries". 

The Google case is one of three cases targeting prominent technology companies that allegedly violated the United States' most difficult biometric privacy law, the first law to be ruled out.

The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act was a major obstacle to technology companies working on face recognition initiatives. 

Companies are required to obtain explicit approval from people before they can conduct a vital survey of their bodies. 

Illinois citizens who feel violated their rights can file lawsuits under this law. 

Companies, including Google, Snapchat and Facebook, have faced lawsuits in 2015 and 2016 for allegedly violating Illinois law.


The lawsuits against SNAPCHAT and FACEBOOK are still pending

Other cases are still pending. 
In April, a federal judge ruled that Facebook should face a collective lawsuit from Illinois users for allegedly using images of face recognition technology without the explicit consent of the user. 

The "Keyword suggestions" feature that offers users suggested people based on their faces in images that allegedly violated Illinois law.
